Bible Stories Revisited, Luke and the Acts of the Apostles by Sr. Macrina Scott, OSF

“Many of us learned Bible stories as children. When we revisit them later in life we bring a rich treasure of life experience that gives a depth and meaning to the stories. At the same time, the Biblical stories help us to appreciate and share stories from our own lives.” From the Introduction

In her examination of the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles, Macrina Scott gives special attention to those stories and issues particularly characteristic of Luke’s writings: concern for the disadvantaged—especially women, the poor and cultural minorities—and prayer. Through a spiritual look at the stories unique to Luke, such as the Good Samaritan, Mary and Martha, the Lost Coin, and the Road to Emmaus, this book offers rich insight into the mission and message of Jesus.

This book revisits twenty-four stories and offers reflection on each Scripture story based on modern scholarship and Scott’s insights as a religious educator and scholar. Bible Stories Revisited provides extraordinary opportunities for spiritual growth, especially for those who have fulfilled responsibilities to children and careers. It is ideally suited for individual and group use, with step-by-step Scripture guides and questions for reflection.
